As it's moved beyond PC speaker systems, Logitech has produced some of the better "cheap but good" iPod speakers we've seen in recent years. And now the company is adding a portable Bluetooth speaker to its lineup. The Logitech Pure-Fi Mobile boasts four 2-inch speaker drivers--two active, two passive--and a rechargeable battery that (according to Logitech) will deliver 12 hours of AC-free playback time. In addition to supporting wireless streaming from A2DP-enabled audio players, the Pure-Fi Mobile can double as a standard Bluetooth speakerphone. If wireless isn't your thing, the speaker can also accept any stereo audio source via its auxiliary line-in jack. And to round things out, it can double as a PC speaker via the USB port, which can also be used to recharge it. To complete its travel-ready pedigree, Logitech also throws in a soft carrying case.
We've seen plenty of stationary and portable Bluetooth speaker systems before, but the Logitech looks to be a good mix of design and features. As always, we can't make a judgment on the sound quality until we get some hands-on time, but we're hoping the Pure-Fi Mobile sounds at least as good as its iPod speaker cousin, the Pure-Fi Anywhere. Look for it to hit stores in June for $150.
